El Cap is thrilled to partner with Anne-Worley and Mike Moelter, the founders of Movement and long-time champions of the sport of climbing, philanthropy and community.


Founded in 2009, Movement Climbing + Fitness has been one of the leaders in the Colorado climbing market. Today, Movement serves Boulder, Denver’s Baker Historic District, and Denver’s up-and-coming RiNo Art District. Anne-Worley and Mike are passionate climbers and have worked in the climbing and fitness industry for more than 20 years. Each brings personal experience from USA Climbing, the International Federation of Sport Climbing and other gyms across the country. Movement has established a leadership position through its focus on eco-friendly design, outstanding customer service, high-quality gym operations and route setting, and an expansive fitness and training offering.

“As core climbers, and fitness enthusiasts, Mike and I believe that joining El Cap creates an incredible opportunity for building strength in our industry,” said Anne-Worley Moelter. “We have worked with some of the key El Cap team members for a long time, and believe that together, we can provide an unparalleled experience for members and guests. Mike and I have stayed consistently active in the industry, and we believe this step creates the best chance to affect positive change across the board.”

“This is a very special opportunity for us all. Movement Climbing + Fitness’ premier locations and high-quality services align with El Cap’s climbing gyms, and they have an impressive team that supports these functions,” said Robert Cohen, CEO of El Cap. “These gyms will expand access with one membership and allow us to collectively continue our work in building a stronger climbing community for all to participate in.”
